Book Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes the third novel in the erotic, fast-paced trilogy including Release Me and Claim Me.
This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who’s never had to take “no” for an answer, and Nikki Fairchild, the Southern belle who only says “yes” on her own terms.
 
Our desire runs deep. But our secrets cut close.
 
Beautiful, strong, and commanding, Damien Stark fills a void in me that no other man can touch. His fierce cravings push me beyond the brink of bliss—and unleash a wild passion that utterly consumes us both.
 
Yet beneath his need for dominance, he carries the wounds of a painful past. Haunted by a legacy of dark secrets and broken trust, he seeks release in our shared ecstasy, the heat between us burning stronger each day.
 
Our attraction is undeniable, our obsession inevitable. Yet not even Damien can run from his ghosts, or shield us from the dangers yet to come.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from J. Kenner’s Wanted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a let down July 31, 2013
By Callee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After loving the first two books of the series, I couldn't wait for Complete Me to arrive. Where the first two books moved quickly, I found this one to be rather easy to walk away from...as in, laundry got done, food got made, dishes washed, etc. It fell into a pattern...little bit of story, sex scene, little more story, sex scene, and on and on. Too much sex, not enough story to balance it out as the other books in the series did. Still love the author and will continue to read her work.

I enjoyed the first two books of the series, but I didn't go bat$hit over them as many of the 5 star reviewers did. This one I was even more lukewarm over. First the mystery where the second book cliffhanger left off- I was looking forward to the third book unfolding being about that resolution. (I totally had a Girl with the Dragon Tattoo vibe planned in my head) So I was pretty deflated when that mystery was eliminated in the first 15 minutes of reading.

Ultimately, I don't think I respect the connection between the two damaged love birds. It just seemed more unhealthy than all of my other favorite screwed up power couples. (Christian/Ana, Chloe/Bennett, Brooke/Remington, Abby/Trav, Jesse/Rowan etc etc). The CONSTANT use of the "c" bomb I thought was a little too much to actually be hot, the sex scenes were so long and drawn out that I surprised myself and just started skimming to skip through them, the typos started showing themselves pretty early on (which @ the cost of this book I was REALLY surprised about that).

There were parts I really enjoyed, such as when the three if them were relaxing together in the mountain cabin and shopping in the town. Those moments I found very endearing. I would definitely recommend the book if you read the other two, but this isn't one that will make my memorable book list in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ending to the series!!! July 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to be approved for a review copy from NetGalley thanks to the publisher. I couldn't wait to see what happened between Nikki and Damien in Complete Me and started reading as soon as the review copy appeared on my kindle.

I personally think Ms. Kenner did an amazing job with this trilogy. I've loved both Nikki and Damien's characters from the very beginning and loved watching each of them grow not only as individuals but as a couple throughout the series.

I had figured out Damien's secret much as Nikki had long before he shared it with her. As private as Damien is, even though he is always in the spotlight, I totally understood him going to trial rather than letting his past come to light. I loved that Nikki loved him enough to support his decision. Nikki has become much stronger with each installment in this trilogy. She still tends to whine a bit too much for my liking, but she is strong enough to do whatever it takes to love and protect Damien.

I have to admit, the person going after Damien threw me for a loop. I honestly never thought this individual would do anything that might hurt Damien, but it fit perfectly once I thought out all the clues. I will say parts of this book broke my heart, and yet I still loved it so much. The passion shared between Damien and Nikki is off the charts hot, and I love how much they truly need one another.

In my opinion, Ms. Kenner did an amazing job with the wrap-up of this trilogy. I won't say I wouldn't love to visit with Nikki and Damien in the future, because I would. However, if there are no more books with them as the main characters, as a reader, I got the ending I wanted and the characters deserved.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Sex September 15, 2013
By Charlie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I feel like this series has way to much sex in the book. Maybe for some people that is a good thing but I just get tired of reading over and over again about how much sex they had. There wasn't enough storyline. I don't feel like I really got to know the characters well enough. I also don't like it when an author isn't aware of her audience and what she has already written. In the first book the main character quits her job and in the second book she is suddenly going to work at said job with no reference to how she got her job back. Give me a little credit please. I would not recommend this series. Of course I completed all three books because it's like a bad movie you can't turn off. I just have to finish it.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING END TO THE STARK TRILOGY July 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Stark Trilogy #3
★★★★★
5/5 Stars

We start the book three weeks after we left Damien and Nikki in the Kempinski Hotel in Munich, Germany. They are still there, waiting and preparing for Damien's murder trial. Nikki thinks he is trying to slowly push her away from him. He spends most of his nights in the Hotel-Bar drinking Scotch.
He could save himself by just telling the court about the abuse he suffered as a kid, but he refuses. He wouldn't be able to live with himself once the truth is out in the open. He values his privacy too much, fought too hard to get to where he is today. Nikki wants to yell at him to do something, to defend himself, but he just won't.
After finding him in the Bar again one day, Nikki decides it's time for a bit of fun. So she rents a Lamborghini and Damien drives them out of the city on the Autobahn - to a little lake, a place he loved as a kid.

QUOTES:
"Not afraid?...Is that really what you think? Jesus Christ Nikki, I'm terrified of being ripped away from you. Of not being able to touch you. To kiss you. To hear you laugh, to look at you. To be with you."

"How dare you be afraid Damien....when you could make it all go away."

On the first day of the trial at the Criminal Justice Center in Munich ... things happen ☺
But - I will leave that for you to read on your own!

I don't want to spoil anything .... only a few not-too-spoinling-points:

- Nikki's relationship with her best friend Ollie is still not back to what it used to be
- Damien and Nikki - very sexily - visit a Munich night club
- there will be another club night in LA with Nikki pretty drunk ☺
- we meet Nikki's other best friend and room-mate Jamie again, and Evelyn, Giselle and Lisa...

More About the Author

When Julie was knee-high to a grasshopper (an expression that she would like it known she has never, ever used in real life) she informed her parents that she was going to be a novelist, and proceeded to write Kitty Claws, a bestselling book about a cat as Santa. (The book sold out its entire print-run of one, so lets not split hairs about that "best-selling" thing, okay?)

After that stellar start, Julie continued to dabble in the literary arts, writing short stories on yellow pads that she forced her mother to type, scribbling poems on ruled notebook paper that she forced her mother to type, making up skits and songs that she forced her mother to watch and listen to, and diving head-first into high school journalism, at which point, mom finally got a break.

In college, she continued with the journalism thing, picking that as her major and working at The Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas. The idea that she could actually write novels and, oh, buy food too, completely eluded her.

The journalism thing cranked along nicely for about one semester. Then Julie got a job as a production assistant on a movie originally called Splatter, but which was released as Future Kill (and can still be found in Blockbuster and through Netflix), with really great Giger poster art. Julie worked her tail off, appeared as an extra, had a great time, and promptly switched her major to film.

Graduating at the ripe old age of 19, Julie chickened out and didn't move to Los Angeles to become the next Steven Spielberg. Instead, she stayed in Austin and worked as a media assistant until she decided that perhaps law school was the better way to go because, hey, a degree in film slides so seamlessly into law. (Or, more likely, grad school was inevitable and the LSAT seemed doable.) Not one to waste time, Julie took the LSAT in December, and was admitted to Baylor Law School on a full scholarship the following February. Law school and Julie got along great, and after graduation, Julie went to work as a law clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, where she had a fabulous time drafting legal opinions, preparing the judge for court, and taking regular trips to New Orleans on a government per diem. During her two year stint as a clerk, the writing bug bit again, and Julie wrote a stage play that will never, ever see the light of day. Really. So don't even ask.

After her clerkship, Julie decided she could handle moving to the Big City, and she took a job with Skadden, Arps in L.A., where she worked on a variety of cases with some very smart lawyers. After a year, she moved on to smaller and smaller firms (and had a short stint as a production exec at a small film company, thus justifying all those credit hours in college). She continued to work with very smart lawyers, one of whom introduced Julie to Julie Garwood (her books, not the woman herself), and the writing bug bit again.

Though Julie had been dabbling with writing in her limited spare time, she'd lacked focus. Now, she'd found it, and she was determined to write an historical romance. You may, after reviewing Julie's book list, note that there are no historical romances on there. Let's just say that she didn't succeed at that task. Julie did, however, discover that while she has a head for contemporary nuances, the ins-and-outs of historical detail are enough to make her head explode.

The in-progress historical was promptly shelved, and Julie turned her attention to fleshing out a contemporary romance, having decided that category romance was the way to go, since with the demands of a legal job, she'd be much more likely to finish 240 manuscript pages than 400.

Finish them she did, and though she got nice feedback on the voice, the novel didn't sell. One editor, Harlequin's Brenda Chin, returned a rejection letter with a note that the hook wasn't enough of a "sexy premise."

Always up for a challenge, Julie came up with the opening line, "You need a man," which she thought had oodles of sexy premise potential. She just had to find a story to go with the line. Eventually, she did, and Nobody Does It Better, Julie's first published novel, was born. She entered the first few chapters in contests, finaled, and was ultimately judged by that same Brenda Chin, who ended up buying the manuscript. (Which is not the reason Julie thinks Brenda is a really cool person. Truly.)

By that time, Julie had realized that 400 pages were manageable after all, and she'd almost completed a paranormal romance along the lines of The Little Mermaid about a cat who is in love with her master. The Cat's Fancy sold just a few months after the original sale. Both books came out in 2000, along with a second Temptation, and Julie has had at least 3 books hit the shelves annually every since, and now has well over twenty books to her credit, crossing over a multitude of genres, most of which are represented in some way by the clever pictures in the collage at the top of this page.

Praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a "flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations," Julie's books have hit lists as varied as USA Today, Waldenbooks, Barnes & Noble, and Locus Magazine, all of which has made Julie a happy camper. Julie is also a two-time RITA finalist, both times for books about strong women (a superhero and a demon-hunter). There's probably some deep meaning there, and if you know what it is, feel free to drop Julie a line.

Julie was also the winner of Romantic Times' Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Contemporary Paranormal of 2001, the winner of the Reviewers International Organization's award for best romantic suspense of 2004 and best paranormal of 2005, and the winner of the National Readers' Choice Award for best mainstream book of 2005. Not that she's keeping track or anything.

Julie writes a range of stories including quirky romances, sexy contemporaries, young adult novels, suspense, paranormal mommy lit, and (soon!) darker urban fantasy.

Her initial foray into the urban fantasy mommy lit genre--Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom--proved especially successful, resulting in a Booksense pick, a Target break-out book, other accolades and honors, and a movie deal. Specifically, Carpe Demon, is in development as a feature film with Warner Brothers and 1492 Pictures. Julie frequently pounds on her battered wooden desk (Salvation Army, $25, gotta love it) in order to urge the project from development to screen. (In Hollywood, these things are never certain until you're watching the movie and eating popcorn.)

Julie and her husband moved from Southern California back to Texas in 1995, and Julie quit the practice of law to write full time in 2004. Now, she lives and writes in central Texas with her husband, two daughters, and several cats. She is an active supporter of Love Without Boundaries.
